Presbyterian upsets Radford on the first postseason buzzer-beater of 2016

One down, many more to come.

March means buzzer-beaters, and while there were will likely be some higher-profile editions that also come with a greater degree of difficulty over the course of the next month, we should all tip our collective caps in the direction of the Big South first round for getting us started.

That's Presbyterian's DeSean Murray giving the Blue Hose (THE BLUE HOSE!) their first Big South Tournament win ever. The basket was reviewed and deemed good by the officials, allowing Presbyterian to move on and face second-seeded Winthrop in Friday's quarterfinal round.

Presbyterian's move to Division-I, which began in 2007, has been as rocky as any program's in America. The Blue Hose only became eligible to compete in the postseason in 2013, and had dropped their Big South Tournament opener in each of their previous three attempts before Thursday. It's fitting that their first D-I postseason victory should be a memorable one.
